San Diego CA, 16 June 2020: Anokiwave, Inc., the leader in highly integrated, cost-effective silicon-based IC solutions for the booming millimeter-wave (mmW) and active antenna markets, today announced the appointment of two prominent wireless industry executives to its Board of Directors. Expanding to nine directors is one of several strategic investments Anokiwave is making to achieve its aggressive growth objectives.
Bryan Ingram, formerly Senior Vice President and General Manager of Broadcom’s Wireless Semiconductor Division (WSD), and Michael T. Murphy, formerly Senior Vice President and General Manager of MACOM’s RF and Microwave Business, have joined Anokiwave’s Board effective May 7, 2020. These recent additions bring more than 50 years of combined operational expertise, a track record of success with development and production of high-growth, high-volume RF and handset products, and industry relationships that are both broad and deep.
“We feel honored that two such successful, professional, and proven industry leaders would join our Board in this unique moment of growth of our industry. Given how 5G mmW infrastructure buildout will have a high-volume aspect similar to that of Wi-Fi access points and handset modules, their industry expertise is highly valued,” said Robert S Donahue, Anokiwave’s CEO. “We are committed to being a leader in this market, and the knowledge and experience Bryan and Mike bring, along with the expertise of our other board members and employees, will accelerate Anokiwave’s transformation into the industry’s most successful commercial-volume supplier of highly integrated mmW silicon core ICs for some of the fastest-growing markets in the entire electronics industry.”
